Stefan Köpsell

Stefan Köpsell has been working in the field of anonymous communication and privacy preserving technologies for more than 20 years. He received his diploma in computer science from TU Dresden in 2000. Since this time, he is working at the chair of Privacy & Data Security at the Faculty of Computer Science of TUD, which he currently leads as an acting professor. In 2010 he received his doctoral degree from the same institution. He joined the Barkhausen Institute, a research institute dedicated to the Internet-of-Things (IoT), in January 2019 where he leads the Secure and Privacy-Respecting Data Processing group. Besides his interest in privacy-preserving and privacy-enhancing technologies he is interested in IT-security in and by distributed systems — currently with a special focus on IoT.
